Some Template Hints won’t turn off.

I opened up Magento today to do some dev work, same as always. I had Template hints on, but decided to turn them off so they wouldn’t futz with my design. I popped in as always, turned off the hints and…

Well, MOST of the Template Hints dissapeared. The “Header” and “Footer” template hints are still showing. I’ve toggled the option on and off a few times and these two won’t dissapear.

Thoughts?

These Hints vanish if I don’t display the Header or Footer- It’s like they got “Turned On” inside the block itself and now can’t be shut off. Help?

Maybe turn off cache and delete everything inside /var/cache ?

Happened to me as well. When I turned off “Hints” most of the hints turned off, but the one around the footer didn’t.

Cleared browser cache with no luck. I then went in and refreshed the cache - that didn’t help either. Finally, after disabling cache again (system/cache management) and saving the hints disappeared.
